Same happened on mine last year, supply pipe had blown off the fuel rail due to crimp connector not being tight enough.  Local dealer added insult to injury though.

Failure of the plastic in-line fuel connectors is a well-known issue for K1200RS bikes, and a predictable result.

Are the issues being seen on the S1K bikes a design issue we should all be checking, or one-off QA issues?

Err...  I count FIVE number eights.  Another Beemer boo-boo, their documentation seems rife with errors.

Thank you for the information.

Looks like one of the eights should be a four which is a o-ring.

I have a 2017 S1000R, bought new that year and only till last year, end of the 2018 season, I had an issue with gas leaking as well.

The night before it happened, I was riding back from work to home about 30kms away. No issues until the next morning, I went to start her up and gas started pouring out the left side. I had quickly turned off the bike and starting thinking what if that had happened while I was riding only 6 hours prior... wow!!

I had the bike towed with Roadside assistance, still within the warranty and BMW was able to fix the problem. Telling me that it had been a clamp for the fuel filter hose that broke... it's not the only thing on the bike that just broke off; bracket for horn also.

As for the previous comment on the BMW's negligence.... something should be done about the recalls. Possible riders lives at risk.

Sounds exactly same as mine, and others I've heard of.
Makes you wonder if there is a high pressure "pulse" on startup. Don't think I've heard of any blowing off in motion.
